Ah, so exporting those types of functions is not pratical? Oh well...
> There could be two ways to achieve bare pci config accesses for all
Wait, again I'm confused. Let's go over the main points here:
- for 2.5 everyone uses the pci_bus_read_config* and
pci_bus_write_config* functions and is happy. Well ACPI isn't happy,
but the code there currently works, so let's leave it at that.
- for 2.4 we don't have the pci_bus* functions, so we need to do
something. I originally wanted to look into exporting the
pci_config_* function pointers, but you said that doesn't look
possible based on the different arch specific implementation.
- Because of this, you just proposed a patch, yet your patch uses the
pci_bus_* functions which are not present on 2.4. If they were,
everyone would be happy again, and not need such a patch, right?
